The National Association of Local Councils are also a good source of guidance and advice, as are the Hampshire Association of Local Councils.
If you are planning to be a Candidate or Agent in any of these elections, please contact Test Valley Borough Council as soon as possible on firstname.lastname@example.org, providing your full name, contact telephone number and contact email address. Alternatively, they can be contacted on 01264 368021. This information will be added to their distribution list so as relevant information becomes available nearer the time, it can be sent to you. If you do not already have an e-mail address you are advised to set one up. The timetable is tight and if you are relying on information coming to you in the post, you may miss a critical deadline.
Test Valley Borough Council will be holding a briefing for candidates and agents to cover the process and requirements for nominations, as well arrangements for polling day and the count. This will be held on Wednesday 4 March 2015 at Stockbridge Town Hall, commencing at 6.00pm. If you would like to attend this meeting, please let Electoral Services know.
